When & Where
Think of Converge-SF events as a venue to explore the intersection between design and technology. We hope to bring you inspiring speakers, letting them narrate their creative efforts by way of the presentation of a project. We will cover the many technologies which are used across the design and development workflow and delve into one or two of these technologies along the way.
